Wireless Remote Shutter

Hello All,

I have a K2000. I'm looking for a remote shutter release. I was looking for one with lots of features, I found this one:

Vello FreeWave Wireless Remote Shutter Release RW-C1 B&H Photo

Just wondered if anybody had one of these, if they liked it and why. Are there any models that are better?

Thanks,
Scott

I think that requires a socket for a remote release (for the receiver part), which your camera doesn't have.

You're best off looking for an infrared remote. You can pick them up on eBay for a couple of bucks, but you have to wait for a shipment from China. Pentax has made wireless remotes, models: E ,F and D. You can also use IR remotes made for Canon Digital Rebel cameras. Some people have even made their IR TV remotes work.

Agreed... 1.99 free postage and a 1 week wait on mine...
